this poppy has been in 'leaf' for over a year, when I first got it I wasn't even sure what it was! hopefully it will flower soon. and thats where the pasta strainer went to....I maybe went out for salad and got distracted.....
the peony looks a bit reluctant to fully open...as soon as it does the wind will probably blow the petals off....
in the green house this sempervenium is flowering for the first time, funny little plants, they thrive on being neglected it seems!
the double poppy has been flowering for a good couple of weeks, its spreading to make a nice big colouful impact.
quaking grass, luckily neglected enough that I haven't weeded it out...
also in white, very delicate looking but a tough hardy plant.
this is a small part of my friends large and neglected garden, there is beech hedge down one side and some established hostas and grasses. all the little plants are cuttings or splits from my plants so this is 'my bit' and I'll be keeping an eye on it. I've used plants that should look after themselves, its a difficult garden, exposed and windy with a very poor clay soil, and no gardener!! hopefully there will be an photo later in the year showing it all filled in.
and Abbey, my reason for neglecting my own garden.....
Abbey has lost a lot of her winter coat, still some to go especially the 'two tone' look on her head. she is starting to get a big grass belly, this will be monitered as I don't want her getting too fat!!
A lifetime of kind horsemanship, I think we were doing natural horsemanship before it was ''invented''
I have completed Level One with Quantum Savvy Natural Horsemanship.
I am sad I can no longer access the Parelli learning platform, its just too expensive with too many changes.
I've tried some clicker training with good results and follow Hannah Weston, but haven't enrolled in any courses yet.
